Vote your idol for our first Billboard Music Awards in Japan!  
I need to say THANKS and SORRY for all of you on my f-list, I am away from LJ but sort of okay(I hope).

Billboard USA and Billboard Japan are going to hold their first music award, so-called "Billboard JAPAN Music Awards 2009", on January 31st(Sun), 2010, at Tokyo Midtown.

Billboard Music Awards is one of the honored 4 biggest music awards in USA founded in 1990 while they are suspending it since 2007, and Billboard USA is now under the discussion to hold it again in 2010.

This Billboard JAPAN Music Awards not only honor the 1st rank songs on the yearly charts, but also nominee the 1st rank artist on every week, then they hold the voting on mobile phone browser and web and praise the top artist, hold new comer prize, and the special prize from Billboard USA.

(their announcement quickly summarized and translated by masuda_takahits)

Nominees for Billboard JAPAN Top Pop Artist 2009 (Johnny's related only)
The best 4 artists will be given the prize.

- Arashi
- Kenta Yano starring Satoshi Ohno
- Kanjani 8
- Koichi Domoto
- Tsuyoshi Domoto
- Tomohisa Yamashita
- Ryo-san(*Shingo Katori on Kochikame)
- Coming Century
- Kinki Kids
- NYC Boys
- Yuma Nakayama w/B.I.Shadow
- V6

Voting period: December 1(Tue)-31(Thu)
(unfortunately LANDS seems to be late to be nominated)

In my opinion, as this is the very new award here, and it's held by a foreign famous company, this award will be less influenced by the complicated matter in the world of the entertainment business in Japan.
And personally I want to know how this supposedly "clean and fresh" chart will work with Johnny's.
Surely I want to post something like "LET'S VOTE TEGOMASS!!!!!!" to all the community, but as I can't decide which group to help, now I just leave this information here as a public entry.
If you are interested in this vote and want to help any group to be honored, as I don't mind you to copy my post above, how about making any tactics to win the prize with any group?
I wish my favorite idols to get any prize as Johnny's now basically refuse competing any music awards in Japan!

How to vote:

Click HERE the website of Billboard JAPAN then you will find the form like the one seen below.
At the "pop artist" section you may find the list of idols/bands you might be familiar.
Then you need to choose the other sections(jazz/classic/independent).
Only people who have the address in Japan can win the lottery present, but they said that people outside Japan also can vote(I've already asked them by e-mail).

After clicking the confirmation, you may see the confirmation page.

Then you need to push the voting button, and your vote will be sent.

Thanks a lot for the detailed post!
I was able to fill everything out. But I can't vote. There's no vote button on the confirmation page *sad*

Maybe it's a temporary problem, so I'll try again :)
